Default Trying to achieve curly hair? Products?

Hello, my hair is not so "frizzy", but it looks tangled even if it's picked out. I use the Eco Styler Kyrstal Gel, and I get a good amount of curls but some spots just don't curl and the curls aren't really defined. What products can you recommend to get more curls? I plan to keep my hair around 1"-2". Not sure of my hair type but it looks like the last one when you register.

Thanks,

Gello

Just a thought: if you want your hair to be curly, depending on the size of your curls, you might need longer than 1-2" of hair to fully realize it. Make sure your hair is properly conditioned and moisturized and try using something other than a pick. Sometimes a wide-toothed comb can do the trick.

You might just need to grow it a bit longer

^ I feel the same. My hair at that length is straight and spiky, now my hair is super curly and wavy so it could be you might have to grow your hair a bit more t oget the curl definition your looking for.

+1 AGREED. When I first started growing my hair out it was straight up out my scalp up to about two inches or so. I thought to myself..."what is my hair type!?" After that it grew out (and up) and curled, kinked and coiled itself a bunch. Try and be patient!
